[BBC News Article] “Low calorie shakes and soup diets ‘recommended for obese'”
At The New You Plan, we have long been preaching the amazing health benefits that following our low calorie diet promotes and now it’s been recommended that the NHS should offer them too! Recently, the BBC published an article on a recent study by the British Medical Journal which shows the role that low calorie diets play in reversing diabetes and obesity.
This week, as published by BBC News, a study by BMJ (British Medical Journal), said that “Diet replacement programmes made up of low-calorie soups, shakes and regular counselling should be a recommended NHS treatment for obesity.”
People on low calorie diets, similar to The New You Plan, lost three times more weight than those given standard dietary advice by their GP, University of Oxford researchers found.
Furthermore, their risk of developing heart disease and type-2 diabetes reduced.
Prof Paul Aveyard, study author, GP and professor of behavioural medicine at the University of Oxford, said losing weight and keeping it off was hard.
“It’s boring being on a normal diet and people struggle to stick to it for a year. But these programmes get you when your mental strength is at its highest. You have to concentrate effort into 12 weeks and because they eat so little, they lose a lot of weight quickly.”
In the study, of 278 people from 10 GP practices in Oxfordshire, half followed a low calorie diet programme for eight weeks – limiting intake to 810kcal per day – then re-introduced other food gradually over the next four weeks.
They also saw a trained counsellor every week, for 24 weeks in total, to help them stick to the diet and keep the weight off.
The other half of participants were given the usual weight management advice and support from their GP practice.
At every stage of the study, people following the diet replacement programme lost more weight.
After a year, they had lost on average 1st 9lb (10.7kg) compared with half a stone (3.1kg) for those in the usual weight loss group.
When their blood pressure and cholesterol was measured, there were also noticeable improvements.
And those with type-2 diabetes were able to radically reduce their medication.
